"Twenty Five young American architects are taking on current significant issues facing the world in the 5×5 Participatory Provocations show at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. With the aim of engaging with the public while still being provocative within the field of architecture, 5×5 argues for participatory criticism, or critical engagement through architectural practice. The curators posed five prompts for offices to explore one of through physical models. [...] The resulting models range from the playful to the austere, while questioning the current status of their prompted issue."
